Question 2
Your company, IE21, helps small businesses meet their networking requirements. One of the small businesses, MickCorp, just purchased 10 new workstations on which the company wants you to install Windows XP Professional Edition. The company then wants you to migrate documents and settings from old Windows 98 machines to the new XP Pro systems. You must migrate the following settings:

  • Internet Explorer (IE) settings
  • Outlook settings and information stores (ISs)
  • Dial-up connections
  • Screen-saver selection
  • Fonts
  • Folder options
  • Taskbar settings

MickCorp has a small 10Base-T network, and you connected an extra hub so that all systems can access the network and the central server. Which of the following options represents the best way to migrate these settings from each Win98 machine to a new individual XP system? (Choose the best answer.)

  1. Copy the registry of each Win98 system to a special folder on the server, run the Migration wizard and point it to the folder that contains the corresponding Win98 registry, and the system will transfer the settings.
  2. On each XP Pro machine, Run the File Settings and Transfer wizard (Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, File Settings and Transfer). Create a Wizard Disk and take it to the Win98 machine you want to transfer settings and files from. Run A:\fastwiz. A dialog box will appear. Select the option to export the settings registry to the server. Go back to the XP machine, and run the "File Settings and Transfer" wizard again. Select the "Import Remote Registry" option, and the system will transfer the settings.
  3. You can transfer these settings only by directly upgrading the hard disk that contains the files. Use a program such as Norton Ghost to create an image of each individual Win98 hard disk on the server, then expand this image onto the hard disk of each corresponding XP Pro system. After Win98 starts to boot on the new machines, insert the XP Pro CD-ROM and upgrade the system.
  4. Copy the Win98 machine's registry to a diskette. Go to the XP machine and run regedt32.exe. Go to the Registry menu and select "Open local." Insert the diskette that you made on the Win98 system and load the registry, then select "Merge registries." All the Win98 settings will copy to the XP Pro machine. Manually copy all the files through the network drive.
  5. On each XP Pro machine, Run the File Settings and Transfer wizard (Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, File Settings and Transfer). Create a Wizard Disk and take it to the Win98 machine you want to transfer settings and files from. Run A:\fastwiz. A dialog box will appear. For the transfer method, select "Home or Small Office Network," then select "Files and Settings." The computer will scan the network and, on the screen of the XP machine you used to create the disk, prompt you for a password. The system will then transfer the settings and implement the files and settings.

Question 3
You performed a fresh installation of Windows XP Professional Edition on a new computer, and you were surprised not to find the standard icons on the desktop. Which of the following steps can you take to restore the My Computer, My Network Places, and My Documents icons to the desktop? (Select all that apply.)

  1. Right-click the Start menu and select Properties; select the Desktop tab and select the My Computer, My Network Places, and My Documents check boxes.
  2. Click Start, Settings, Taskbar and Start Menu; select the Taskbar tab and clear the "Hide inactive icons" check box.
  3. Right-click the desktop, select Properties, and select the Desktop tab; press the Customize Desktop button, and select the My Computer, My Documents, and My Network Places check boxes.
  4. From the Control Panel, select Classic View; run the Display applet, select the Desktop tab, press the Customize Desktop button, and select the My Computer, My Documents, and Internet Explorer check boxes.
